about us

 The Art of Design Studio is a division of The Youth Employment Program, INC., based in Salmon, Idaho. As a non-profit corporation,  Y.E.P. was created to foster an atmosphere of educational development and to provide employment opportunities and training for young adults and high schoolers in our local communities.  

The Art of Design Studio (AODS) was created to provide business, creative art and computer design job skills for both youth and adults in the Salmon Community. AODS strives to continuously cultivate professional workmanship, leadership and creativity in projects. We partner with local schools and organizations to financially and professionally benefit our youth and community. 

The Art of Design Studio is a partner of the Youth Employment Program. As a staff, we are a creative blend of youth and energy combining professionally trained adult with local students. We feel that offering job skills, training and the chance to cultivate confidence, leadership and responsibility to our youth is invaluable. Our younger staff in turn helps us keep a fresh touch to our designs and continues to produce excellent products in the studio. 

The Youth Employment Program has teamed up with local designers and select high school staff to transform your experience in creating custom made screen printing, gifts, awards, graphic design, signs and anything you might need for your school, business, or special project. We are dedicated to providing unique, professional designs for any budget. We specialize in a variety of mediums: from custom designed graphics, branding and promotional items to professional screen printing, awards, window and auto decals and much more!
